Summary Against a background of European fascism and the black jazz scene in Paris of that time, this fascinating and important novel, a duet with Kirby Williams previous book RAGE IN PARIS, follows the desperate attempts of Urby Brown to escape to America with his Jewish lover, Hannah Korngold. As the Nazi net closes around them in June 1940, Urby and Hannah make one last throw of the dice, knowing that a failed attempt to escape will prove fatal.Like the historical thrillers of Alan Furst, this novel explores the lives of black Americans as they confront the demons of nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism which spawned the deadly horrors of the last century and are alive today, leading perhaps to new disasters.
